I love reading History. I find it more fascinating than most fiction. Although a registered Independent voter, my political and social views lean to a conservative outlook. Both major political parties are, in my opinion, totally bankrupt in ideals and intent. Both pull too far in their respective direction, and all have sold themselves to the highest bidders. A New England Yankee, I have great admiration for the founders of our nation. The early ones, Washington, Adams Jefferson and others put their lives on the line. Add Madison, Franklin and more. We are most fortunate that our Revolution/Rebellion was organized and led by educated, enlightened men (not to forget Abigail and some other uncelebrated women) who thought far into the future, and it took other men like Jackson, Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and FDR to maintain the hopes & dreams of millions. France's Revolution started well, but was taken over by lesser men, and fell into the Reign of Terror, and the Guillotine. Russia suffered Lenin & Trotsky. We were luckier! I cannot get through the day without reading the Comics. Regular comics first, then the Political 'toons. Unemployed for 35 months, I finally landed a good position with a good company! However, now I have less time to comment, (a relief to some) and less time to read other comments. Just typing out my gripes & diatribes gives me a feeling of being a little less helpless, and I feel better having said it. Sometimes I goof. I do like reading other comments: occasionally I learn something.

    The Ideology of Global Capitalism Undermines the Public Good (from ThoughtCo.com)

    The neoliberal ideology that supports and justifies global capitalism undermines public welfare. Freed from regulations and most tax obligations, corporations made wealthy in the era of global capitalism have effectively stolen social welfare, support systems, and public services and industries from people all over the world. The neoliberal ideology that goes hand in hand with this economic system places the burden of survival solely on an individual’s ability to earn money and consume. The concept of the common good is a thing of the past.

    Has even ONE Republican congressman, or former Repub. President, or former Repub. minority/majority leader come out against the increasing intensity and frequency of this Republican president’s attempts at baiting, exacerbating racial hatreds, widening the already-dangerous divide of racial tolerance? How much does it take for anyone to now recognize what the Republican Party is all about. . Only two types of people vote Republican: The wealthy and fools.

    I pressed “Like” because I agree with your observation. I do not like the reality of it.

    I won’t dredge up names, but Epstein’s alleged orgies are very similar to a major international scandal in Europe during the late 1880’s. For years, a mega-wealthy industrialist just about purchased Capri, Italy, for his private dalliances with young boys. It finally came out, the press made the most of it, ending with his suicide. I doubt Epstein has any sense of shame, however. Certainly his “fun” friend doesn’t.

    Did Trumpy ever produce his birth certificate, to prove his father was not an Orangutan, as challenged by Bill Maher?

    Has the very wealthy Ms Pelosi ever called these new reps into her office and talked with them, explaining what her strategy is, and ask for their support? Or, does she simply want to rule? (My, how my political naivety is showing!!)

    The Wealthy Elites of France (1700’s) and Russia (1900’s) just kept it up, amassing more and more money at the expense of the working class, until the pressures built up to very bloody explosions. But no, that couldn’t happen HERE!
